Glad to see Premium plans plainly written out like this. Thanks for communicating, looking forward to the future.

I feel like we've been dancing around the idea of written reviews being outdated for years now. Really enjoyed Jeff's take on it, and I mostly agree. Also really interesting to see him try to work through how to even review Halo Infinite as part of that.

I got CSIV in the mail the other day and I've been struggling to actually pick it up and start it. CS3 really didn't do much for me, and hearing that CSIV is worse has drained almost all of my motivation to finish the series. It sucks because I do have fond memories of Cold Steel 1&2, and still enjoy going back to them.

3 just feels like it's buckling under the weight of the massive sprawling world they've tried to build, and the (sometimes misguided) decisions that were made along the way. I haven't spoiled myself completely on IV, but I've heard enough that I can't even really convince myself that it'll all get better or pay off in a satisfying way. I'll get around to it eventually, but man... It's rough.

The voice acting gives me a real "We want this to be listenable to foreign audiences/We want to make it easier to match up the dub" vibe that just kind of makes the whole thing sound off.

I know its still early, and this is only a small look at the game, but I went from 'cautious optimism' to 'sad realization'. So, uh... Thanks, I guess.

Oh man, Quest 64 is the one game I think of when I remember the Blockbuster days. Solely because I remember renting it, hating it, and immediately taking it back to the store.

@matiaz_tapia: That's good to know. There was that initial reaction of "Oh, it's still this" when it came to the Scouts, but hearing things change up later is maybe the best reason to keep going I've heard so far.

Scouts are maybe the most broken class in VC, to the point where I'd say it kind of makes the game less interesting than it maybe should be. You could run through most maps in VC1 using them and capture the main base in a turn or two, and seems like the same can be said for this entry. The worst part is that the game's scoring system seems to expect you to do this for the most part, which makes it feel like you're being punished for actually trying to use other units or strategies.
